This selection of prints, drawings and iconic works by four of the most important European artists in the second half of the 20th Century conjures one of the most dramatic, and sublime, periods of post-war Italian and international art.
At the end of the Second World War, art questioned whether it was still possible to represent a world whose structures had collapsed under violence and dehumanization. Crisis-stricken, the subject sought out of necessity a new creative freedom. In this context, the works of Alberto Burri, Lucio Fontana, Giuseppe Capogrossi and Afro Basaldella constitute art's response, or rather, its expressive variations, through the constantly renewed exploration of elementary components, such as matter and space, line and color, sign and gesture.
